Cycling Trip to Mai Chau 2 days

Just 160 kilometers from Hanoi, Mai Chau offers you a balance of cultural interest and physical activity in the form of cycling, set amidst some of northern Vietnam’s most stunning scenery.

On this biking tour, you will discover Vietnam’s village life in a remote setting. Mountain bikers will love this biking trip for the variety of trails, from good single track paths and undulating rough jeep trails to some climbs that end with amazing descents.

The ride passes through many villages, across lush rice paddies and above a valley with stunning views. You’ll get to know the local hill tribe people (the White Tai) and their culture better when you have an overnight stay in a local home. Or, you can opt to stay at the Mai Chau Lodge.

The next day the rewards continue with a mostly downhill ride to Hoa Binh. You will drive to Cao Phong and cycle from Cao Phong to the village of Giang Mo, home to the Muong people.

Then, you will visit Giang Mo Village before transferring back to Hanoi.
